Q is for "Quell"...

...I'm going to do a two part post today.  The second portion could be considered "off limits" to those of you who have NOT read a particular book yet...

-Part One-

Fun word, right?

Would you like to see the real reason why I chose this word?  You can if you are OK with the little spoiler I have below for a certain movie coming out this November!

-Part two-

If you are familiar with the book "Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins, then you already know how the word "quell" fits into this post!

That's right!  Come this November, "Hunger Games" fans will be back to the arena once more!

After reading the words: "I'm going back to the arena"...I felt like my heart was ripped from my chest.  No joke.

It was unfair, unjust, unimaginable! The already existing dislike for "President Snow" was now full on hatred towards him.

You wanted to reach for Katniss through the pages of the book and wrap your arms around her.  To comfort her.  To keep her.  Say anything kind or encouraging to her.................But, you couldn't!

You listened to her thoughts as she expressed in pure exasperation the fear in her heart through the words printed before you.  You cried.......clutched your book a little tighter...and mustered up the willingness to continue the story.

Past Quarter Quells

I saw the "Hunger Games" twice in theaters before reading the first book.  I cried.....a lot...the 2nd time I watched it.  It took just about a week to finish all three books in the series.  I texted my sister into the late hours of the night when I finished the third book "Mockingjay".  I was a terrible mess the weeks after.  Now I have to wait patiently to endure the story all over again...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this trilogy.  If you happen to be so inclined to "chat it up" with me regarding any of these books...I'd be more than happy to participate! 

Take care and thank you ever so much for the read!

Quell is a great word, there is something poetic about the line, 'Put and end to.'

Sorry,I've never watched or read The Hunger Games but I see on twitter some people are mad for it.
